是的， 珍惜我們所擁有。天天感恩，內心有平安。 只要我們健康，就快快乐乐，一起年轻有活力的過生活。 其他一切就不必為之煩擾了.
Recently I was touched and inspired by a church sister’s situation and would like to share it with you all.
Today I went with a few other sisters (in our church) to visit an elder sister again, who is now under the hospice care because the cancer treatments were no longer useful in treating her cancer. Last Sunday was the first time we were allowed to see her (after almost two years of waiting). Her doctor gave up on her cancer treatments since last Saturday. She is only 7 or 8 years older than us.
When we were received at their living room the first time, the very first words uttered from her husband’s mouth were ‘哎， 健康就是一切。一個人無論擁有多少財富，但也不能買回健康了’。 Then, followed with a very long silence……I looked at his lonely face in his deep thoughts and then, the surrounding elegantly decorated living room with famous paintings and expensive furniture and accessories….At that moment I had to try very hard in holding my tears from falling…..觸景傷懷, 感觸頗深…..
The sister was very weak, could no longer eat and swallow any solid food, but could only take one sip of the Ensure drink at a time……She opened her eyes with a sweet smile when she saw us. She was also able to take in 4 or 5 more sips of the Ensure at that time. Her husband was so thrilled and shouted: ‘See she is able to take so ‘many’ sips of the Ensure this time’! It was like a miracle came true to him. His face was brightened up with big joy at that moment……..We each briefly talked to her, prayed for her, and sang a favorite hymn of hers for her…….Then, she was tired and it’s time for us to leave…….
At their house front door step, her husband said to us: 生命是多麼的寶貴，能夠活一天就是福，如今能夠暢快的吃， 喝一頓飯食就是福， 每分每秒都要珍惜感恩知足………
是的， 讓我們彼此互相勉勵, 珍惜我們所擁有的, 天天感恩, 天天快快乐乐!
在這一年中，我們也有傷心地回憶， 幸珍重病不治，突然地離開了⋯在得知幸珍的情況後，童學們在短短的一個半月裡，就籌募到一萬一千四百元美金的款項，來幫忙分擔一些幸珍住院時的龐大醫療費用。 雪中送炭見真情。 但從此我們還是失去了一位善良有愛心的老童學。
小的外文世界，掀起说不尽的温情，一定有很实在的原因 – 奉献，参与！

話說回來， 我們都是七十歲左右的人了。 頭髮皮膚體形能夠有所不變的道理嗎? 可貴的是隨著年齡的增長， 我們也更能夠體會到什麼是真善美，它不在於外表， 而是那發自內在的， 才是最珍貴而恆久不變的。
前兩天與友人們參加， 北加卅台大同學會主辦的一年一度的杜鵑花之夜， 有請知名中國近代史學者葉文心女士來演講。 她深入簡出提到自甲午戰爭到今天的中國近史要事。 我印象最深刻的是當她談到：過去我們深深相信著蔣公是中華民族的救星，而當年彼岸的大陸的史觀， 則說毛主席是偉大中國命運的領導人。 葉女士並沒有繼續予以硏討， 卻說她就”點到至此”。 她也點到過去”閃耀的英雄” 祟拜時代， 如今也已不復見。
非常謝謝你花費心力， 編輯登載了灣區同學們在四五月份裡， 一系列的活動照片和報導文章。
看到利中， 千芳訪問檳城與在府上的合照， 閱讀你的詳細報導， 傳神也傳真，讓人覺得身在其境似的感覺。 不愧為一流的文筆與主編。 有你坐鎮我們的網站， 是大家的福氣!
沒問題，你的posting fee，非常樂意付上。 過去十個月裡， 你為我們的網站奉出太多的心血與時間。 我在想也許在下個年度的計劃和預算中， 是否我們就請你來擔任主編輯與posting 工作? 我覺得網站最好注重精專，有意義和代表性的刊物。 廣泛登載to meet quota, 也許不重要吧。
